Meet Capricorn! Capricorn is a sweet and gentle Soi Dog who was rescued by our partner rescue Soi Dog Foundation. She flew to us all the way from Thailand, and due to her shyness, we thought she would enjoy a stint in a foster home. Turns out, we were right! Capricorn is doing very well in a home environment. She is completely housebroken, likes going on walks, loves treats, and enjoys sleeping in the bed. Capricorn gets along very well with other dogs, and currently shares her foster home with 2 other dogs. She is shy around new people, so it does take a little bit of time to get to know her. However, once she opens up, she is a very loyal and loving girl. She also has a fun-loving and silly side to her. When she gets excited for walks, she will do a bunch of play bows in anticipation. Capricorn enjoys playing with soft toys, and her favorite is a stuffed moose. Occasionally she would steal a sock and hide it in her bed for safekeeping. Capricorn was estimated to be born in July 2012, and she is a great medium size of about 35-40 pounds. If you would like to give Capricorn a forever home, let us know!If you'd like to meet this pup, please visit www.thebarkinglot.net/adoptTo initiate the adoption process for this dog, please complete our online application by clicking below.

Say hello to Chilaca, everyone's favorite pocket pittie! Known for having a perma-smile, she is always quick to bring smiles to the people in her life. Chilaca came to us from Mexico, emaciated, mangy, and very pregnant. She gave birth to 10 puppies, was a great mama to them all, and all but 1 have already found their forever homes. Chilaca is a total sweetheart and volunteer favorite. She is an awesome mix of fun and active outdoors, and docile and laidback indoors. She is currently living in a foster home, and she is doing great! Chilaca, or Chili, as she has been affectionately dubbed, is a very sweet, loving, gentle, affectionate, loyal, engaging, pleasing, and fun-loving girl. She gets along well with other dogs, and she especially loves being around humans.She enjoys the company of all people young and old and does not know a stranger. Give her a belly rub or ear scratch, and she will gaze at you with those big beautiful golden eyes as if you are the love of her life. In her foster home, she spends a good chunk of her day napping, content to be curled up in a cozy ball both while her foster parents are at work or while they are watching TV in the living room at night. Chili loves treats, learning new commands, sunbathing, going on walks, playing with stuffed toys, getting zoomies out in the backyard, and most of all, giving kisses. She is crate trained, does not have separation anxiety, and hardly ever makes a peep (except when she snores in certain sleeping positions, or snorts when she is really excited). Chili is a very quick learner. She caught onto a potty routine within her first 24 hours in a home. Her favorite command is “go to your bed” - check out a video of her showing it off! The one department Chili needs training on is leash walking, particularly with reacting to other dogs who try to engage her from across the street. She has made improvements in her foster home and successfully met 2 neighborhood dogs while out on walks, but she will need consistency to keep the momentum going. Bear in mind, at TBL, she had many doggie friends in her play group, and she's a frequent K9rs hiker on the weekends with lots of other dogs and volunteers. On long walks with no distractions, she is excellent at loose-leash walking. Chili is young and estimated to be about 3 years old. People are always surprised to find out she weighs more than she looks since she has a petite frame - she tips the scales at 37 pounds, but is the same height as other pups who weigh 27 pounds. If you are looking to add a sweet pocket pittie to your pack, Chili might just be the perfect pup for you!If you'd like to meet Chilaca, please visit www.thebarkinglot.net/adoptTo initiate the adoption process for this dog, please complete our online application by clicking below.

Meet Churro! This handsome boy is as smart and well-behaved in person as he looks in his pictures. Churro came to us from a shelter in San Bernardino and he is now awaiting his forever family in the comfort of a foster home. Churro’s foster parents have endless complimentary things to say about this wonderful boy. He loves to relax and lay on the floor or couch while his foster parents watch TV. He is incredibly respectful of little dogs (the house alpha is a Chihuahua), and coexists harmoniously with the resident felines. Churro is very intelligent and trainable, loves all food and treats, and knows a bunch of commands such as sit, lay down, watch me, fetch, drop it, and even wait. He is completely crate trained, and will voluntarily stay in or go into his kennel, content to chew on his toys. His favorite toys are the soft ones, and he carries around an emptied plush toy like a security blanket. Churro was a little wary about certain spots being touched when he first started living with his foster people, but he soon built trust over time and now he is totally okay with his paws, back legs, and tummy to be rubbed all the time. Though he is great with people, he can be nervous around small children and would prefer an adults-only home. He especially enjoys getting his back scratched, and is an absolute cuddle bug. Churro loves going to the groomers, and they all give him amazing report cards for being so good. He weighs around 85 pounds, and he’s like a big goofy puppy sometimes when he shows off his playful side. He is about 8 and a half years young as of summer 2019 (estimated DOB November 2010). Churro would make an excellent loyal companion, and he is ready to meet his forever people!If you'd like to meet Churro, please visit www.thebarkinglot.net/adoptTo initiate the adoption process for this dog, please complete our online application by clicking below.

Dally is a sweet and shy Tiger Jindo mix with a sad beginning. He was found on the streets of Apple Valley with his mom, dad Darry, and 3 siblings, including Ponyboy and Sodapop. They were all wary of humans and appeared to have limited familiarity with them. The family was taken in to the local shelter, and the mom and smallest sibling were adopted quickly. The other 4 made it to TBL where they received socialization while waiting their forever homes. Dally is the shyest of the bunch, slowest to trust, and also the most unique looking. He has a handsome caramel swirl coat and beautiful, soulful green-brown eyes. Dally will need a patient and loving family to help him warm up to the world and come out of his fear-hardened shell. He will be worth the time and effort though, as he is quite the gentle, loving, and sweet and easygoing pup with his foster mom. Dally would do best in a home with another dog to show him the ropes and prove to him that his humans can be trusted. Dally is a great medium size of about 30 pounds, and he is about 6 and a half years old as of spring 2019. We would love to see this Classic Barker go to a well-deserved forever home!

There is hardly anyone more enchanting than Enchilada! Meet Enchilada, the beautiful golden-eyed charmer. We originally rescued Enchilada from a shelter in Coachella Valley. She was adopted out into a home, but was recently returned to us through no fault of her own. Her previous owner got cancer and had to move into a hospice, so she could no longer care for Enchilada. When Enchilada first returned to TBL, she was very insecure. We are not sure whether it was her change of circumstance, or the stress of what was going on in her last home, but as a result, we moved her into a foster home to help her get some much-needed confidence and structure. We are pleased to share that Enchilada is doing fantastic in foster care! In her foster home, Enchilada is very well-behaved, sweet, docile and highly affectionate. Enchilada is housebroken, crate trained, knows all of her basic commands and can learn any new command with just a few repetitions. After an initial adjustment period, she now gets along very well with her two canine foster brothers. She does not seem to have a preference to men or women and is happy to get attention from anyone! Enchilada is not accustomed to being around children, and would therefore do best in an adults-only household. She does not have any separate anxiety, and she is not destructive at all. She absolutely loves walks and would be a great dog to take on hikes, go for a run, or stroll around the neighborhood. She is also happy to sit on the couch and binge watch movies with you. Enchilada is a beautiful dog with a very soft and unique multi-colored coat, and she is a great medium size of around 45-50 pounds. She is currently about 4 and a half years old (estimated DOB November 2014), and she is looking for a forever home to call her own!

This sweet little lady is hoping that 2019 will bring her the good fortune of a forever home! Meet Fortune, a playful and vivacious pup who is sure to brighten up your day. Fortune was rescued from a shelter in California City. By all volunteer accounts, she is a slam dunk pooch. Fortune is just under 4 years old as of early summer 2019 (estimated DOB July 2015), and she still that youthful wiggliness that puts a smile on everyone's face. Fortune is fantastic with other dogs young and old, big or small, as she does not discriminate. She enjoys going on walks with volunteers, roaming around the play yard with her pals, going on group hikes, and partaking in a game of tug-of-war with gusto. She is a great medium size of roughly 45 pounds. Fortune has a short black coat with white accents that requires very little grooming. She does quite well on the leash, and she knows a myriad of commands such as sit, stay, and even high-five (where she’ll actually jump up to high-five you with her paw). Her friendly, outgoing and fun-loving personality makes her the perfect companion for any family. Fortune can't wait to meet you and shower you with her signature kisses!

Who is that dashing looking boy with those crazy ears and stunning eyes? Say hello to Gasper! This handsome Staffy came to us from Mexico and boy is he the life of the party! Gasper is a very friendly, playful, energetic, robust, enthusiastic, smart and engaging pup. He is a bright young fella (estimated DOB January 2017) who is a virtual sponge for training and learning. Gasper is attention-oriented and quick to catch onto things. We believe he is deaf, though it certainly doesn’t slow him down any. Gasper has a best friend at TBL who is another medium-sized pooch like himself. He likes to make new friends whether two or four legged, though what makes him happier than anything else on this earth is a good chew toy! He absolutely loves to play with toys, chasing them down, and thrashing them about. Gasper would do well in an active home that can provide him with lots of play and adventure time. Gasper is 60+ pounds and he is all muscle on the outside, but putty on the inside. Do you think Gasper would be the perfect fit for your family? He would love to meet you!If you'd like to meet Gasper, please visit www.thebarkinglot.net/adopt.To initiate the adoption process for this dog, please complete our online application by clicking below.

Do you have a friend in your circle that you can always count on? The loyal one who has your back not matter what? That's our handsome hero Hercules. He is sweet, gentle, loving, affectionate, goofy, and happy-go-lucky despite never knowing the comfort of a forever home all his life. Hercules and his best friend Roxie came to us from a boarding facility where they were rescued as puppies half a decade ago. Roxie has since found her forever home. Today, at about 8 and a half years young (estimated DOB January 2011), Hercules is still patiently looking for his. Anyone who has met him will attest to the fact that Hercules is a good boy who is very grateful for every interaction. He enjoys spending time outside in the play yard with his dog friends, going on weekend hikes with volunteers, and he loves all people who come across his path. 55-pound Hercules has a short and low-maintenance red and white coat, an adorable pink nose, and a gracious smile to boot.

Looking for a silly, outgoing, fun-loving Bassett Hound and Boston Terrier mix to brighten your days? Then Heron may just be your guy! Heron came to us from a shelter in San Bernardino County, and he quickly made fast friends with everyone both two and four legged. His favorite pastimes at TBL include roaming the play yard with his buddies, playing fetch, going on weekend hikes with volunteers, and just being a ham for attention. You only need to meet him to know that this playful dude has a happy-go-lucky outlook on life and nothing will bring him down. Given his energy, he would do best with more experienced owners that can keep him grounded. Heron loves to give you kisses – whether your hands, arms, or face, he is not picky! If you are not already smitten with his adorably squat legs, classic black and white coloring, constantly wagging tail, big inquisitive brown eyes, and happy smiling face, you will fall in love with his sweet and merry personality. Heron weighs around 30 pounds, a great size for most types of living situations. He is about 7 and a half years young (estimated DOB December 2011).

Meet Joe, a sweet and docile soul inside and out! Joe was saved by our partner rescue Save Korean Dogs. He was bred as dog meat to be sold in the Korean dog meat trade. Many of these dogs were born into total darkness, never felt sunshine on their backs, or knew any human interactions as they were kept in cages raised above the ground. This was life as Joe knew it, and as such, he was very afraid of human touch when he first arrived at The Barking Lot in November. As you may have seen in our social media videos early on, Joe would cower and flinch if you touched his fur, and he did not understand the concept of leash walking in the slightest. Fast forward a few months, and Joe is making us all incredibly proud with his progress and how far he has come! As of April 2018, he has been promoted to one of our front office greeters. Joe is blossoming in foster care with our director, coming up to volunteers who come in and out of the office to say hello, and going on daily walks which he has grown to love. One of his new favorite American pastimes is getting Puppuccinos at the neighborhood Starbucks every morning with his foster siblings. Joe is still bashful around new people, but he comes more and more out of his shell with each passing week. He is a curious, playful, mild-mannered, and engaging boy. Joe's birthday is July 12,2016. He is a great medium size of about 45-50 pounds. If you would like to give Joe the forever home he is so deserving of, let us know!

If you are a fan of Dante from the Disney Pixar movie Coco, then you are sure to love his real life doppelganger, Kyle! Kyle was saved by our partner rescue Soi Dog Foundation and came to us all the way from Thailand in May 2018. He was in pretty bad shape when he first arrived at the SDF facility, and was clearly neglected and mistreated in his past life. Since his unique hairless coat requires some extra care, we have placed him in foster with one of our volunteers in the meantime, and he is thriving! Kyle is currently learning a lot about daily life in an American home and what it is like to be an American dog. He is a friendly, engaging, and affectionate fella who enjoys being pet. He likes to gives big sloppy kisses on your face if presented with an opportunity. Kyle loves food and he is very treat motivated, which helps him pick up training at a good pace. His foster parents are working on housetraining with him, and he has already learned how to sit and perform certain touch commands in a short time span. Kyle shares his foster home with 2 other dogs, and while he gets along quite well with them, he prefers to stay out of their way and observe their interactions. He enjoys his walks and has no trouble keeping up on nice long strolls and hikes. Skincare wise, Kyle would need sunscreen if he is going to be out in the sun for long periods of time, but otherwise, the occasional application of lotion whenever his skin feels dry goes a long way. His foster mom ordered him his own doggie sunsuit to wear on outings - he definitely rocks that look! Kyle is roughly 4 years old and tips the scales at about 55 pounds. His foster mom recently DNA tested him so it will be interesting to see what the results comes back with in the coming weeks!

Today, she has filled out nicely to her ideal weight of 40-45 pounds, and is currently awaiting her adoption day from the comfort of a foster home. She is a friendly, affectionate, engaging, fun, and silly girl loves to play. She is great on the leash, is housebroken, and crate trained, although she does not really ever need to be crated. Peep gets along very well with other dogs, and she would love to go to a home with another at least one other canine companion. She currently shares her foster home with a few other dogs including a Husky foster sister whom she follows around and sleeps with at night. Peep is a ham for affection and enjoys being closer to her humans. Though she can be a bit bashful when first meeting new people, she warms up quickly in no time. Peep is a sweet and gentle soul who is also very loyal and loving to her people. She gets super excited when her foster parents come home and enjoys cuddling with them on the couch. She is also super quiet - they have only heard her bark once in the last handful of weeks!

How she found herself in the shelter system in San Pedro beats us, but she has come a long way since her rescue. She spent a few months in foster with our director, where she lived in harmony with resident dogs and learned her house manners. Today, Pinky is housetrained, knows her basic commands, knows fetch, is good with dogs, and loves to gives kisses to her favorite human companions. She does need a firm and experienced owner who can show her right from the beginning that Pinky is not in charge, but once you set those initial boundaries with her, she is just like any other happy-go-lucky pooch. Pinky likes to spend her time roaming the play yards, wrestling with her canine buddies, or chasing after toys you throw for her. She also enjoys going on walks or skateboard-walks with some of our volunteers! Pinky is a playful, active, loving, and great dog who would make a wonderful hiking or running buddy. She just turned 9 years old in May 2019. She tipped the scales at an even 50 pounds at her last weigh-in.

She would run from all volunteers, cower in corners, and would work herself into a frenzy if anyone ever tried to get a leash around her neck. To her credit, she was always great around other dogs, with whom she felt a sense of familiarity and comfort. With lots of consistency and patience, Shake would eventually stop running away at the sight of people, and would even allow volunteers to pet her without flinching. Then, as you may have seen on our social media videos, she began to learn how walk down the sidewalk on a lead! Slowly but surely, she got more and more used to daily routines. Today, Shake is enjoying the life of a foster dog with our director, and she has wowed us all with her progress. For a dog that was deemed to be feral upon arrival, Shake has made leaps and bounds of progress in just a few short months. Today, you can see her amongst our front office greeters, coming up to sniff people curiously as they went about their business. At home, Shake is very obedient, inquisitive, and engaging. She is 100% crate trained (as is the case with all of our Korean dog meat trade survivors - they recognize the crate as their safe place), and has never had an accident at home to date. She caught onto the tight schedule that the rest of the pack ran on and assimilated with ease. One of her new favorite American pastimes is getting Puppuccinos at the neighborhood Starbucks every morning with her foster siblings. Shake has been cat tested and she has done as well around felines as she has around other dogs. Though still incredibly shy around new people, she is coming more and more out of her shell with each passing week. Shake is just a few months over 1 year old, and she is a great medium size of 30 pounds. If you would like to give Shake the forever home she is so deserving of, let us know!

Shep is proof of the enduring qualities of dogs. This handsome boy has been awaiting his forever family since 2012, and he hasn’t given up hope! Originally rescued by an organization that could not care for the dogs it had, Shep was confined to a dog run in the desert with only another dog for companionship day and night. When we brought him to The Barking Lot, Shep was very hesitant and shy with people. However, within a day, Shep emerged from under the table to take treats out of the hand of a volunteer, and within two days, he was wagging his tail at the sight of people. Since then, Shep now greets us at the office window, gives doggie kisses, and willingly goes on walks with volunteers that are strangers to him. Though he is a little jumpy around quick movements, Shep shows that he does want to become everyone's friend. Shep responds very well to the example of other dogs and would probably do best in a home with another dog who is confident and can mentor him in the socialization he didn't receive as a young pup. Despite his initial fear of new people, Shep has never displayed a hint of aggression. He is truly as gentle and kind-hearted as they come. On most days, you can probably catch Shep fulfilling his duties as a front office greeter at TBL. Shep is in his element on pack hikes and group trips to Fiesta Island. Once Shep has had some time to warm up to you, it's not hard to see that Shep is a sweet, loving, affectionate, and easygoing boy. Shep is a medium-sized boy weighing under 60 pounds. Shep is 6 years old as of 2017 and he has many years ahead of him. He has come so far already that it will just take being in a loving home to bring him fully out of his shell. Though he's the type of guy who generally shies away from the limelight, Shep deserves all the recognition in the world for being a wonderful dog. If your heart has a soft spot for shy dogs who bloom into lifelong loyal companions, then Shep may just be the perfect dog for you!

Shirley says hello! Shirley is a petite Shiba Inu mix of about 4 and half years old (estimated DOB January 2015). She lost her right eye from an infection while she was in Thailand. Her former owners couldn’t afford to pay for her treatment, and that’s how she ended up at the government dog pound in Phuket. Shirley recently went into a foster home, and we have a feeling it won't be long before someone swoops up this slam dunk pup! Shirley is a sweet, easygoing, loving, playful, affectionate yet independent lady. She loves to snuggle, and is not above nuzzling your hand for additional ear scratches or a longer belly rub. However, she is also totally content to mind her own business or go off on her own to take cat naps on her dog bed, in her open crate, or in another spot on the couch. Shirley is 100% housebroken, crate trained, and good with dogs, cats, and strangers alike. She is great around children as well, though preferably older ones who know to respect her space when she is chowing down on treats or toys. She has a super soft and manageable coat, and she is a nice compact size of just 20 pounds. She loves going on long walks around the neighborhood, is easy on leash, and enjoys going on car rides. She likes to play with toys (preferably ones she can remove the stuffing from), and will happily sit for treats. Don't be surprised if she takes said treat or toy back to her blankets to bury though, as she sometimes like to save things for later. Shirley will make a wonderful companion for any lucky family!If you'd like to meet Shirley, please submit an application at www.thebarkinglot.net/adoptTo initiate the adoption process for this dog, please complete our online application by clicking below.

Size is no indication of personality, and this holds very true for our favorite low-rider Shorty! He is a bundle of fun packed into a stout 40-pound package. We rescued this Classic Barker from a San Bernardino shelter where he was picked up as a stray. He has gorgeous red and white coloring, a short and easy-to-care-for coat, inquisitive chestnut colored eyes, and a sturdy and adorable low-to-the-ground physique. Shorty has the strength and affection of a Staffy and the sweet nature of a Bassett. He is a natural people-pleaser and will happily wag his tail at the sight of you. He enjoys treats and is all paws on deck when it comes to training and rewards time. When we get him out on a leash, he is eager to explore and loves to check out his surroundings. When we sit down with him for some quality one-on-one time, he will snuggle right up nice and close and gently wag his tail while enjoying a nice patting. Though he is a huge fan of humans, unfortunately the same cannot be said for most dogs. He would do best as an only dog in the household, but that doesn't mean he isn't fantastic on controlled pack hikes with experienced volunteers, because he is! Shorty is 7 and a half years young as of spring 2019, and he still has a whole lifetime of love and affection to give to his future forever family!

Birthdate: June 2012Sisu came to us from San Jacinto shelter through a series of unfortunate events, but we're certainly happy to have her in our care! In late May 2019, Sisu's ownership changed hands through a private 'adoption'. Following this, her new owners took her to the shelter to have her registered. Upon discovering the cost, they asked the shelter to euthanize her. When the shelter refused, her new owners took her back with them and proceeded to toss her out of their moving vehicle - putting her right back in the shelter as a 7 year old, injured bully breed. She was held at the shelter for some vetting and while they conducted and investigation. Here's where her story changes - she was rescued by The Barking Lot!Sisu's namesake is a Finnish concept meaning strength of will, determination, perseverance, and acting rationally in the face of adversity. And she encompasses all of these things! Sisu's foster parents have nothing but good things to say about her. Nothing phases this girl, she's great with dog and humans of all shapes and sizes. She loves to cuddle, but she loves nothing more than her ball! She'll play fetch all day and has even been known to fall asleep with her ball in her mouth. While she is crate trained, she doesn't need a crate. Her house manners are perfect - she sleeps quietly on a dog bed all night and always does her business outside. She's quiet all day while her humans work and greets them at the door with her ball and a little howl every evening when they get home.

Sparrow is the last of the Pirate Puppies awaiting his home! He was born in April 2018 to a sweet Schnauzer mama. Sparrow is our special boy and holds a big place in the hearts of all the TBL volunteers. You see, Sparrow is a distemper survivor. He took the viral illness the hardest of his siblings, and it left him with a pretty sever involuntary muscle tic that renders him incapable of walking. It’s as if he has a case of chronic hiccups. As such, Sparrow is a very low-key and low-maintenance pup as he spends most of his day napping and people-watching from his favorite cushion. Sparrow has been affectionately nicknamed 'inchworm', and if you met him in person, you would understand. While it can be heart-wrenching for some to see a puppy with an ongoing muscle twitch, rest assured, Sparrow is in the company of many puppy playmates and is showered by lots of attention from volunteers. He is a gentle, even-keeled, quiet, loving, and sweet boy. There is a chance that with time, his muscle tic can diminish somewhat in severity. For now, Sparrow will patiently await the right family who can see past his disability and love him for the sweet sweet soul that he is!If you'd like to meet this pup, please visit www.thebarkinglot.net/adoptTo initiate the adoption process for this dog, please complete our online application by clicking below.

Ask any volunteer and they'll tell you they've hardly ever met a more sweet, gentle, and docile pup than Tiger! This handsome boy came to us from China through a partnership we have with Shanghai Animal Rescue. Tiger was badly beaten and abused by someone who mangled one of his back legs beyond repair. As such, Tiger only has 3 working legs and employs a bit of a hop when he walks. Despite the hand he was dealt, Tiger is an extremely sweet, friendly, and easygoing pup who is amiable to every human who comes across his path. Shelter living was harder on Tiger than most given his mobility, and he was also often picked on by other more dominant dogs given his submissive nature. He suffered an injury to his ear which left it permanently bent, though we think that just adds to his endearing charm! Tiger spent some time as our front office greeter where he got along easily with all dogs big and small. Due to his high interest in cats, he would do best in a feline-free home. Tiger is currently in foster care and he is an absolute angel! He is incredibly easy, laidback, loyal, and loving. Content to lay next to you while you are working or watching TV, Tiger also does great at home by himself. His foster parents take him on several short walks a day to help strengthen his back leg. A vet assessed his 'nubbin' and advised that it is not medically necessary to amputate it as it doesn't negatively impact his daily activities. Tiger is completely housebroken, and despite weighing over 75 pounds, he is a true gentle giant without a mean bone in his body. He turns 4 in this summer (estimated DOB July 2015). He has the classic German Shepherd double coat which will require maintenance from time to time, and it helps that Tiger is extremely well-behaved and patient during bath time. Everyone who meets him comments on how very sweet he is, so don't miss out on your chance to meet this incredible soul for yourself!

The name Titus carries multiple meanings across different cultures and times with translations ranging from: giant, honorable, saved, and pleasing. All of which are quite fitting for this sturdy, noble, pleasant, good-natured, and timelessly handsome boy. Titus joined the TBL temporary barking family from Mexico in August 2017. He was abandoned in his house in Tijuana by his previous owners, emaciated, and completely covered with fleas and ticks. Titus was placed in temporary foster care before he made his way across the border to TBL. By all volunteer accounts, Titus is a very friendly, sweet, athletic, playful, fun-loving, and well-balanced pooch. He gets along quite well with other dogs and people. We have reason to suspect that he is already housebroken (or will be very to housebreak) as he knows to do his business when taken out on grass during walks. Titus is a robust boy tipping the scales around 70 pounds. He has a short and low-maintenance coat that will be very easy for upkeep in the grooming department. Titus is estimated to be around 2 years old, and he would love a forever home to call his own! If you'd like to meet Titus, please visit www.thebarkinglot.net/adoption-application.

This is Willow! If you follow us on social media, you likely saw the post we shared of how this puppy came to be in our care. Willow was dumped on TBL's doorstep at the end of June, in a crate, with no note nor information. She had a collar with a tag that said Willow, but the number was disconnected. Since nobody has since come forward to claim her, it is up to us to find her a forever home. Willow is currently in foster care and she is doing great! Willow is well-behaved, engaging, crate-trained, and loves to give kisses. She is working on house training next, and she is great about not going in her crate and sleeping through the night in it. She travels well in the car, and does well on leash. Willow can be a bit shy around new people, but she warms up in no time. She does seem more unsure around small children, so she would do best in a home with older kids and adults. Willow is a sweet, energetic, fun-loving, active, and curious pup and she would love a home that can provide her with stimulation and exercise. She is estimated to be about 5 months old, currently weighs around 15 pounds, and will likely remain a compact size of under 25 pounds fully grown.

Meet Zinnia, who came to us from Thailand in December 2018 just in time for Christmas! This sweet and shy girl arrived very reserved and skittish, so we thought some time in foster would do her some good. Unsurprisingly, she has been thriving! Here is an update from her foster mom: 'Zinnia is definitely a gentle soul. She is still very much scared of people and other dogs so she would rather avoid any contact, but if she has no other choice (i.e. no possibility to run away and hide), she will patiently wait through the situation, usually adopting 'if I won't move they won't see me' technique. She LOVES to cuddle. She loves relaxing next to me while I read a book and she is my regular Netflix partner! We watched the entire season of Our Planet and she seemed hooked. She loves to snuggle next to her human - these are the most relaxed moments I've ever seen her. However, if any guests present, she would rather observe from the distance, from her hidden safe place. She is absolutely housebroken. She LOVES walking, although sudden noises or shadows still scare her.It took her a while to get comfortable and start sniffing around, but once she started she just can't stop. She perks up when she sees a rabbit or a possum and her chasing instinct kicks in. Places with a lot of humans or dogs are still a little overwhelming for her, but little steps - she will get there! She definitely needs a human with a lot of patience and empathy, someone who has the time to help her get out of her shell and overcome the fears. It may be a little too early for her to enter a dynamic, loud, children-filled environment, but I'm sure she can adjust provided she gets enough space to hide away to calm down her emotions, undisturbed. I bring her to work with me and she's great!' Zinnia sounds like a pretty perfect houseguest to us! She is about 4 and a half years old as of spring 2019, and is a great medium size of 30-35 pounds.If you'd like to meet this pup, please visit www.thebarkinglot.net/adoptTo initiate the adoption process for this dog, please complete our online application by clicking below.
